Lindys Stamp Gang ***Gilded Mini Album***

I'm up on the Lindys Blog this week with a new project for you.  I love Starburst Sprays for the shimmer, I love Flat Fabios for the gorgeous saturated color and I love Lindy's embossing powders because you can emboss just about anything with it. I especially love how it embosses on metal and resin.  I used the variety of products on this 6x6 mini album trying to get a gilded look.
I sprayed white silk flowers with Rizzo's Rowdy Red Flat Fabios  and Autumn Maple Crimson Starburst Spray. The leaves were colored with Maidenhair Fern Green Starburst Spray.

  I heat embossed the corner filigree metal pieces that my wonderful friend Rae Moses sent me and the resin frame that I picked up at Michaels for $1.00. I used Queen Sheba's Silver on both pieces, then I sprayed it with Bayou Boogie Gold Starburst Spray.

I used some Zipper Stop Seam Binding to create the ties. I sprayed them with  Rizzos Rowdy Red Flat Fabios  and Autumn Maple Crimson Starburst spray. The wonderful thing I love about spraying fabric or ribbon with Lindy's, is that it does not stiffen the fabric or ribbon like some of the other sprays out there.The ribbon stays soft.

The entire mini album was created from corrugated cardboard that I just adhered the patterned paper to. I followed a tutorial from Frank Garcia for the binding technique to put the pages together, then I covered the spine using a technique I learned years ago from creating Post It Note covers. I just adapted it to create my spine and slipped the album in.

 I used some Tim Holtz clasps to tie my ribbon to. There is no need to untie the ribbon. Just unclip  the clasp from the cover. Once everything was in place, I sprayed the whole outside of the album with the Bayou Boogie gold spray.

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog. I see you enjoy using Lindy's products in many of the ways I do. I love the richness and warmth you were able to achieve in this piece. The embossing powers really just give it that little something extra. I also really enjoyed seeing some of those older techniques. Oldies but goodies, I like to say. Some things just always work. It's gorgeous!
